I am a pastel painter. I chose this medium because of its immediacy and lightness. Pastel allows you freedom to build a richness of color in a single sitting that I did not find in any other kind of painting. It is the purest pigment in a soft medium that can still give you hard edges while maintaining its beautiful fluidity of expression.

Red Sky At Morning
"Red Sky At Morning" (6" x 6")
This painting was created for this weeks Dailypaintworks challenge "The Sky's the Limit". The challenge being to create a painting with the sky as the focal point. My photo reference for this was taken off the coast of Florida last month. It was early morning and we were in for quite a storm that day so I guess the Sailor's saying of "red sky at morning ....sailor take warning" was very accurate.
